Vancouver, BC – May 27th, 2020 – Hemptown Organics Corp (“Hemptown” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce the appointment of Janice Knox and Siddhartha “Sid” Senroy to the Hemptown Advisory Board.
Dr. Janice Knox is a board-certified anesthesiologist. Janice continues to be a much sought-after keynote speaker for cannabis therapeutics domestically and internationally. Dr. Knox is a co-founder of The American Cannabinoid Clinics and ADVENT Academy. She firmly believes that cannabinoid care starts with the understanding of the intricate and complex physiology of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Knowledge is rapidly changing as more research uncovers the depth of the ECS. Dr. Janice is a board member of the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine (AACM) and Co-founder of the Products with Purpose Initiative, an initiative working to create a standard of products based on the pharmacology of cannabis and the physiology of the ECS. The initiative pushes for the philosophy of conscientious capitalism which takes into consideration the environment, social consciousness and responsibility, products created based on science to the efficacy and affordability to the end consumer. Along with her teammates at The American Cannabinoid Clinics, Dr. Knox believes in an integrative approach to delivering medical cannabis care that is rooted in evidence-based Lifestyle and Functional Medicine.
